Does Green Bay Have Snakes?

 

August 30, 2018 ~ You may want to sit down for this.

A recent post to the Backyard Farming & Homesteading NL Facebook group claims a snake was found on a road in Middle Arm.

(Screen shot from the post is above)

The post claims the snake was about 2.5 feet in length.

There was a lot of speculation in the comments on the post, including that the snake in the photo is a harmless Garter snake. Whether this fellow was a lost pet or part of an invasive species, the story behind the snake might stay the snake’s secret for now.

But there has been a past snake sighting in St. John’s, and snakes have been found breeding in western NL.
